Department of Psychiatry
School of Medicine Queen's University

Resident Research

From PGY2 year onwards seminars are given as part of core teaching on various aspects of research such as clinical trials, surveys, research design and methodology and basic data analysis.

We are fortunate to have the leading researchers in Stigma and Developmental Disabilities in this program who are readily available to the residents.

In the past five years residents have not only initiated and completed research projects but have also gone for research electives to Cambridge and London Universities in the UK and our graduates have gone to fellowships at Harvard University and Case Western Reserve University.

During the Child Psychiatry core placement residents participate and complete a research project which can be accomodated within the six months rotation.

There are opportunities for cross-discipline research with the Faculty of Community Health and Epidemiology and Developmental Disabilities.

Our residents are encouraged to participate in research projects.  Graduate students are also an integral part of the research performed in the Department.

National and International Presentations
In the past five years our residents have regularly made presentations not only Nationally but at International Conferences of the World Psychiatric Association in Japan, Italy and Spain.
